SPAR Spain partner Ignacio de las Cuevas in September opened three SPAR Express stores in the northwest of Spain, two in Ourense and one in Pontevedra. The local teams of SPAR colleagues are knowledgeable about local tastes and always guarantee the best possible service to their customers.

SPAR Spain was founded in 1959 when a group of wholesalers who wished to join an international organisation came together. As a result, the brand became the first voluntary trading chain to be established in Spain.
The head office is in Barcelona. It provides buying, marketing, communications, and brand support to the 13 regional partners. Together, the SPAR operators actively continue the expansion of the brand across the country.
